So good to see this. It gives me hope in Christianity, for real understanding of the Bible and actual love shown.
I am so sick of seeing and hearing abuse being hurled around by church people. I am so sick of the hypocrisy, abuse of the Bible, judgment and abuse being expressed, and then these issues projected onto others.
Every time a church person states being gay is sinful… they are in fact the ones committing sin. And many have no conscience, no remorse and no empathy in the process.
And people wonder why I say many churches are breeding grounds for narcissists and sociopaths.
My answer to that – take a look at their issues and how much harm they cause others – and how little conscience they have. Look at how they cherry pick Bible verses and intentionally interpret them literally. See how they use the Bible for abuse, intolerance, and harm. Then consider what personality disordered traits they have to enable them to do this. And how much psychological, emotional and spiritual harm they cause. See the hypocrisy. And how little they care.
So praise God for this man – Justin Welby – hopefully changing a few minds and hearts, in preaching what should be preached.
